Set up a DigiMesh network
Forming a DigiMesh network is straightforward, since all nodes are standard routers by default and there are no parent-child relationships.
- Ensure that the following settings have the same values in all nodes:
- Channel Mask (CM)
- Preamble ID (HP)
- Network ID (ID)
- Configure the Channel Mask (CM) parameter to enable at least the number of channels specified by the Minimum Frequencies (MF) parameter.
To add a new node to an already-formed network, set the same values for those three parameters. When you add the node, it automatically joins the DigiMesh network.
There are other settings that affect the behavior of a DigiMesh network, such as those related to the sleep feature. For details, see Sleep modes.
